Writings on the Wall

Congratulations to the McArthur School Council that hosted the third annual free conference for parents. It featured many interesting sessions on how to support your child's success in school. I attended a session on increasing reading capacity and will be receiving the notes on adaptive technology for children with learning disabilities. Sessions were grouped into six streams: Authors and Writing- encouragement for student writers
Careers- why writing matters in the world of tomorrow
Technology
Parenting
Special interest- all about health and safety in school and out
School Skills- tips and tricks to help you help your child learn

I believe the plan is to make all the information available via the website. www.WritingsOnTheWall.ca. I encourage you to check it out and plan to attend the fourth annual conference next fall. It is truly an amazing resource.
